Schnabel Engineering

In continuous operation since 1956, Schnabel is a leading provider of geotechnical, dam and tunnel engineering solutions nationally and abroad, with risk management rounding out a full-service approach. Our 400+ people in 22 locations have a passion for client service and tough technical challenges. Specialized services include geotechnical and geostructural engineering as well as environmental, geophysical and geosciences services, construction monitoring, and resident engineering. These coordinated geo-related efforts provide integrated service on all projects, from subsurface explorations and soil testing through engineering analysis, design, and construction support.

 Schnabel has provided geotechnical engineering services on behalf of design-build teams for decades. Our expertise includes traditional design-build delivery method services including preparation of project management, providing geotechnical investigations and recommendations for shallow and deep foundations, floor slabs, lateral earth pressures, earthwork, pavements, and seismic considerations and reviewing the geotechnical engineering analysis and report. Our planning studies inspect and review any existing geotechnical reports for and around the site, environmental site assessment reports, hazardous materials mitigation reports, and any information regarding underground facilities and provide recommendations with considerations for local conditions.

 Schnabel’s success on over $15B of design-build and P3 projects is a testament to our value-added services during the pursuit phase of major projects. Schnabel is highly regarded because of our ability to evaluate baseline data, consider value solutions, assess constructability issues, and quickly supply information for submittals. We have a proven track record of meeting expedited project schedules and providing cost-effective technical alternative concepts both during the pursuit and after award.
